Extend PC screen to Wireless TV

by wheelman1031 / October 28, 2013 9:42 PM PDT

I have an LG SmarTV that supports smart screen sharing via wireless.

How can I extend my PC desktop to that TV?

I've heard that WiDI works but I've heard it is very slow for games

What about installing a DLNA server? Any good software?

So far, any screen share over wifi is too slow for games.

Even wireless HDMI could get the gamer upset as you read how they are checking out "input lag" on sets. Any wireless transfer will induce more lag and therefore not a solution for gamers.

I suggest you do a little more research on DLNA as screen sharing is definitely not a feature there.

PC to Wireless

For PC screen sharing it will be via WIDI. It would be best to know the model number the set, however.

WiDi requires that you have a machine that has Intel's Widi Chipset.

For the fasted most stable performance we would recommend an HDMI connection from the PC to the TV if at all possible.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
